The Name Mauthausen

In Austria, the very name of Mauthausen is beyond doubt a synonym for contempt of mankind as the main characteristic of Nazi terror. This Mauthausen has become a remembrance place of paramount importance. As activists of the initiative „A Perspective for Mauthausen“ we want, furthermore, to help make Mauthausen a place of reflection. The town should continue to remember its history and actively assume responsibility for it, today and tomorrow.

Organize cultural events

to help people in their understanding and processing of history.
